Having just finished planting a
jrovo and wind breaka the writer
> oga leave , if the editor and readers
of the REPUULIOAN please , to call
attention to the tmbjoot of tree
> lanting. Wo cannot uoncoive of a
arm aa complete by any moans ,
without a grove and long lines of
wind breaks at Itant. Fruit and
ornamental trees may bo indulged
n later , perhaps , to a better advan
tage. Wo cannot conceive how
any man can do his whole duty in
standing up for Nebraska , ospeo-
ally in Old Ouster , and not bo
bund growing a liberal share of
trees. Trees are moro than a lux
ury with us ; they are found to be a
real necessity. They break the
wind , lodge the snow , rob the
storm of its fury , invite the birds
and make the home altogether moro
comfortable and loveablo. It is
not hard to account for the great
cry of "can't" wo hear from all
aides ; failures all around us , and
fet it could not have been other
wise. Had the right kind of trees
boon sot and at proper distance
apart , ovuu with our meagre culti
vation , now land and hard yearn the
results must have been vastly dif
ferent. Wo never know an instance
where houoy locust , elm , oven ood.
ar , almost any of our native trees
have not proven a success when
givun a reasonable chance.
Patience ia a virtue worthy of
cultivation , and I admit it would
be well for most of us to give pa
tience a little attention in connect *
ion with our tree culture. Treed
do not mature in a single season
and yet they are more stable than
men. Wo loava them practically a
permanent laud mark and blessing
to future generations. The fact is ,
as a rule , a man's heart is most sen.
sative his mind perhaps I should
say , when touched through his
pocket book. Wo have hud the
usual dear experience , hence the
prevailing prejudice on this most
important subject. Now that wo
have had our experience , paid for
it , lot UH turn it to good account
